Tickets on sale starting March 20, 2023
Come relive the antics of Alice, The Mad Hatter, the Cheshire Cat, and more in this wonderful and original ballet adaptation. Join Alice as she visits a strange garden unlike any she has ever seen. The ﬂowers are alive! Alice meets a Weed, who is somewhat pompous, but basically kind. She, like him, is regarded by the ﬂowers as an undesirable creature. However, not even Alice and the Weed are as bad as the Caterpillar. In a panic the ﬂowers enlist the help of the Mad Hatter and his sleepy assistant, the Dormouse, to rid them of the pest. The Mad Hatter only makes everything worse and the ﬂowers ﬂee, pots and all.
Into the aftermath of the chaos arrives the March Hare ready for a tea party. But what a crazy tea party: lobsters as waiters, a moving table and guests hopping all over and sleeping on the table. Alice leaves and rests next to a tree where she encounters a very strange cat that seems to disappear and reappear.
Also enjoy The Seasons our dance interpretation of Alexander Glazunov’s music originally written for choreographer Marius Petipa. The seasons have been a source of inspiration for several composers, choreographers, and artists over the years. We have chosen to use the music of Alexander Glazunov. He composed his Seasons in 1899 for Russia’s Imperial Ballet 1900 performance in St. Petersburg. The initial choreography by Marius Petipa has long since been forgotten. The original allegorical storyline has also given way over time to a more abstract interpretation most often seen in recent years. That is the approach we have taken as well. Thank you to the many choreographers who contributed to this original production, our wonderful costumers who created all new costumes for this performance and a special thank you to Elizabeth Allen her role as Mother Nature. We just felt that the seasons could not change without Mother Nature’s help.
